As part of her efforts to commemorate the World Civil Defence Day (WCDD), the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps ( NSCDC), Ogun State Command, has called on stakeholders to speak with one voice and act as volunteers in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic and other related diseases bedeviling the world.
